I searched for 5 or 6 months for a "ruby ring". After researching natural vs lab created, I realized "created" rubies had the most variation in how those are made, and the quality. Some are not much more than pieces of glass. Some are fusion (which is a slow method), seeming to be very clear, deep red and good quality. Then I had to learn "ratings" on various aspects of rubies. This Anika was natural, with no mention of "leaded glass" filling any part of it, was a wonderful size stone, and still a deep red - which I believe most of us hope in a ruby. I ordered it, was pleased upon site, wore it to my son's wedding in Italy. People loved it, without it being "over the top" or too flashy for traveling overseas. This ring was very feminine and pretty. Room for improvement: I wish this was in 14K yellow gold, and wish the ruby stone was slightly clearer (rather translucent in this stone). But other than that really excellent for an under-two-hundred price. I was very pleased. Would say 4 1/2, but rating seemed to allow full stars. Not giving this a 4, so I give it a 5-star rating. Good job Anika and August, and Overstock! I will highly recommend you! Thanks. -Happy Customer, Midwest Lady (Caroline)
